Just curious if this is possible…
Maybe not totally, but to some degree…?
What if I think of a specific topic and concentrate about it before I go to bed, will it help? 8)

Hehe nice topic 🙂 I myself can arrange and manage what dream I am going to have tonite. I only need to concentrate before sleeping and then taddaa… 😉
Sometimes, when I do not plan to dream anything, I even got a dream or to be precise a vision. For example I dreamt to meet a guy wearing black shirt in an office… few times later I met the same guy in the same situation and I said like, “Oh I think this happened to me before, but when?” Then I asked something to the guy, “What’s your favorite color? Wait, don’t answer now, think about it and answer when I ask you to answer.” I concentrate on him and then asked him to answer. In the same time we said, “Blue and black.” 😀 Then, I really want to meet this guy again. One night I manage to dream of him and in my dream I saw him in a room. I never been there and I never seen him in that situation. Now I am curious whether this will happen in the future or not. Just wait and see 😉
Ooh I like experiments, and even I make experiment in my sleep 😆 😆 I am crazy 😛

I think that’s great. I have a friend that knows who will enter the door before it does; even if she hasn’t met that person before, she can tell how the person will look 😯
I think we’re evolving as a race 🙂 .

Sometimes when I had an unforgottable experience on that day, I dream of it at night..! Dunno how it happens.. Maybe I kept thinking of it all day till I dream of it lol.
But I ever had a dream and the next morning IT HAPPENS!!!
But I wont’ tell you what :p
Does this have a connections between the nerve and the brain..?

Brain is all about nerve, my dear 😉
Ah ya I remember a funny dream. This happened when I was 15 years old or in 9th grade. I had to study hard because the next day would be a final exam for Physics. I never got a good mark for this subject. Unfortunately, there was a great music show in the evening til overnight, means that I forgot my books. I was so worried but then I decided to sleep. Que sera sera, I said. Then… I got something in my dream, reading some exam questions for tomorrow, but I did not care at all because I thought it was just my anxious since I did not study as I should be. In the morning, when I opened my exam paper, whoaaa it was the page that I dreamt of last night!!! 😯 I felt so undefined… strange, confused, happy, awawawwawaaaaa 😉 😆 😆

Thanks guys ^^

Wow… Dr.Stein, you seem to have paranormal abilities… The human brain is exploited only 10%, who know what you can do by using the other 90% as well?
Now, about the dreams… During your sleep, you have 2 kinds of sleep: deep and paradoxal sleep. During the paradoxal sleep you dream. It is absolutely normal to dream about something that is on your mind during sleep. there is a psychology thing here(sorry if i remember things mised up): when you dream your subsoncious takes over. It contains all your hidden desires and stuff like that… Basically, everything that’s on your mind all the time. For example, i always dream about my girlfriend 😀
- August 13, 2005 at 5:21 am #28337
Dream about your lover, eh? Yeah me too 😆 😆 And the guy-in-black in my dream is now my boyfriend 😳 😆 😛
- August 13, 2005 at 6:02 am #28339
I think that 10% statistic is a myth.

And how do they know that we only use the 10% of it..?
Are dreams affected by physical condition..? I mean, when we are a lil bit unhealthy, does this affect our dreams?
- August 13, 2005 at 8:44 pm #28383
Really? I know that thing with 10% from a teacher(bot my teacher, another high-school teacher). I really though it was real… But since everyone seems to disagree, i bow down to the majority 😀
I really need to learn not to trust teachers, they are nothing but trouble.. 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿

Present company excluded of course, Dr.Stein. I was reffering to the teachers in my country.
Actually, if i look over everything i know about the nervous system, it is logical that we use all our brain(just think at cortex projection areas-all 54 of them 😀 )I just never wondered….

I can control my dreams. I can freeze my dream and re-arrange it as i see fit. Have you ever had those dreams where you want to scream but can’t, want to move but can’t?
Netherless to say those dreams are a thing of the past for me but i noticed the persistance to catch me off guard.

I can sometimes change a dream, but in doing so I feel it loses it’s authenticity and I lose whatever feeling I was getting from it. I usually wake up soon after trying to "edit" a dream too.
An interesting little tidbit: Artemesia (wormwood, sagebrush, mugwort) species have a compound that is purported to aid in lucid dreaming. Some people smoke it, some people drink it (absynth), and some people merely put the leaves in their pillows.

I watched the movie Aliens when I was a kiddo, and (though it’s still my all-time favourite movie) after that I had recurring nightmares of aliens and all kinds of other nasty things chasing me around and trying to kill me. Eventually I somehow learnt to "recognize" that it was such a dream again, and that I wasn’t in actual danger. And even nowadays, after recognizing that it’s just a dream, I can control the dream somewhat: I can rarely end dreaming or completely change the dream, but I can give myself some superhuman abilites which help me to beat the alien ass, or other times I just give myself the ability to fly, and then just flee the scene soaring like an eagle! This isn’t foolproof, though 🙁 Often when I give me guns, the bullets don’t work too well and I don’t get the monsters killed. Or sometimes when I fly, it becomes desperate gliding barely off the ground and trouble gaining altitude. Talk about soaring and eagles then… Boy, am I weird or what? 😛
Of course, at some point, I realised that instead of gunning down the aliens or beating them with my fists, I could just dream about naked girls! Much more fun, even though an occasional action-packed, movie-like dream is great fun as well.
Also, (this mainly happens close to the morning), I sometimes wake up in the middle of a dream, and if I just keep thinking about that dream, I fall back to sleep and continue where I was. The trick is, however, that when briefly awake I can again change something in that dream – like all the chicks suddenly wear a lot less clothes or something else fun.
There are a few more examples of how I can control my dreams (sometimes & to a certain degree), but I think I already managed to make myself sound freaky enough 😉
